Joan and her Golden Retriever Kai

Joan Weir, N.D., FCAH has been a practicing Naturopath for over 25 years. She uses energetic mind/body modalities as well as traditional diets and supplements. She has been a student of nature-based traditions for many years with the privilege of having wonderful teachers to lead her towards her own growth and healing. She is a graduate of the Nine Gates Mystery School and has completed an eleven-day Vision Quest in the Inyo Mountains of California. Joan has been a student of the Animas Valley Institute in Colorado, learning Soulcraft practices. She has completed her four-year study with the Four Winds Society, which is an international research and training organization preserving a thousand-year-old tradition of knowledge from Incan elders whose goal is personal and planetary healing. Joan is becoming a practitioner of shamanic energy healing techniques.

Her most recent immersion was with a renowned Chilean Medicine Woman (LuzClara). She has been guiding Joan in the ways of Divine Feminine energies of the open heart, for each other and the earth.  While staying with LuzClara in her mountain home, Joan was guided to her medicine name: Ayuna. This name encompasses the energy of the loving heart. AyunaJoan is the name that connects Joan's medicines together.

All of her experiences with these many teachers blend to give Joan a deeper approach to her healing work.

Joan has a long history as a competitive athlete as well as a teacher and trainer. She works with land and found objects to design settings that can be used for spiritual practices; e.g., labyrinths, meditative structures, pathways and gardens. During the past few years she has also become an accredited Bioenergy Healer and Teacher: see the workshop below.

BIOENERGY Healing:

an introductory workshop

 Learn what energy is and how our health is affected by the flow of energy and how you can actively direct this natural flow.

Learn the basic Bio Energy Healing techniques so you can use them to help heal yourself, family and friends.

Bio Energy Healing is an effective holistic technique based on the understanding that each of us is a complex interactive energy system.

Ancient wisdom teaches us that our life force exists in every part of every cell in our bodies.

Disease indicates an imbalance in this life force that flows freely when healthy.

Bio Energy Healing is a series of hand movements around the body to increase the flow of this energy….to release blockages and return this natural healing flow back to balance.

Widely recognized as one of the most powerful healing methods ever developed, Bio Energy Healing is relatively easy to learn.

You will learn to see, feel, and manipulate the energy fields of the body in order to induce healing. We were all born to be healers!!

           A one-day introductory workshop is available: Contact Ayuna Joan for details.

Joan is a perpetual student of the Earth and all its mysteries and imagination, especially those beyond our ordinary perceptions of reality.
